Normally, Sampan would be a solid four. I love small plates and Asian food, and Sampan certainly delivers. Edamame dumplings were a surprise slam dunk! Unfortunately, we went on a night when the AC seemed to be off. Spicy Asian food, a July evening, and...More

Everyone had delicious food. From sushi to Chinese food to Thai. Service was ok. Trying to get leftover packed up was a little hard to do.

Nice place, Asian fusion restaurant. Tasty starters with tuna crackers, and good scallop as main course. Very kind service, and quick as well. The music (commercial/house music) was not fitting with the place, I would have chosen something different. Good stop if you are visiting...More
